LES FRITES



Did you know that Julia Child spoke highly of McDonald's fries? Before they changed the frying oil from beef to vegetable oil that is, to settle a lawsuit over false vegetarian claims.  She mumbled something about Nutritionists......here is a link to that video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF31qCrclC0

Well, that's a reason to try them then. If that heroine of all food bloggers likes cow fat, I have to try it. 
The owner chef of that gigantic bus turned mobile kitchen explained that less fat penetrates the potatoes and therefore is better than sunflower or any other banal oils. They are fresh, not frozen and they are crispier.  
A small order with a side of ketchup please. 1.50 Euros, or two bucks. That is less than McDonald's fries here in France. What's the least expensive item from a Calgary food truck?

Hand cut, a bit thicker than I usually like them, but very good. Crispy exterior with a nice texture inside.  Victoria says that if she can eat fries without ketchup or mayo, they are good. There you have it.

ROOM TO COOK

LOADS OF WINDOWS, SO THE CHEF CAN SEE WHAT HE IS DOING

CRISPY AND GREAT FLAVOR
